An Experiment On Respect And Diversity On The Streets Of New York

I live in New York City, one of the most diverse cities in the world. For every native New Yorker whose familial roots are deep in the city, there are many others whose familial origins or birthplace is not New York.

Because this is a diverse city, there is a lot of talk of acceptance and respect for those who have different political, social or religious beliefs. The question is, are we receiving lip service or is diversity and respect for another culture/religion truly important?

The video above proves that we have choices in life when it comes to love and hate. We can choose to live and let live or we can waste our energy on hating someone because they believe differently than we do.

If it were up to me, I would choose love because I have one life to live and I would prefer not to waste my one shot around this earth on hating someone because they see the world differently than I do.

But that is how I see the world.

Happy Monday.
